The City of Sedalia may become a Certified Local Government if approved during tonight’s Sedalia City Council meeting.

Council heard a presentation about CLG in June from Bill Hart, executive director of Missouri Preservation. He spoke to council about the many benefits of becoming a CLG, including an economic impact from tourism and enhanced business recruitment. The program will help with the historic preservation of the city.

During today’s meeting, council will review an ordinance re-numbering Article III of Chapter 64 of the Code of Ordinances regarding Planned Unite Development in its entirety. According to the meeting packet, it is necessary to renumber these sections of the city’s code before the CLG ordinance can be implemented.

Council will also review an ordinance adding Sections 64-50 to 64072 to Article II of Chapter 64 of the Code of Ordinances regarding Certified Local Government and adding Division 14, Section 2-685 establishing the Sedalia Historic Preservation Committee.

“The adoption of Sedalia as a CLG has been reviewed and considered for many years,” notes from City Administrator Gary Edwards state. “Sedalia is one of the few cities of its size without a CLG designation.”

Additionally, Mayor Steve Galliher will present nominations for appointments to the Sedalia Historic Preservation Commission.

The council will present service awards to Linda Johnson, Finance Department senior court clerk, for 35 years of service; Gary Gerken, Maintenance Department building maintenance supervisor, for 25 years of service, Ricky McKnight, airport attendant, for 10 years of service; Anthony Beck, Sanitation Department public works service worker, for five years of service; and Christopher Mittenburg, Street Department equipment operator, for five years of service.

Special awards will also be presented to the July 2015 Yard of the Month Contest winners.
